Oddly, using only NoExtract caused pacman to remove the usr/bin/sh 
symlink, replacing it with nothing. (Using both NoUpgrade and NoExtract 
seems to work fine.)

Perhaps it's a local oddity on my installation, but I admit I didn't 
fiddle with it for more than 5 minutes. I very likely overlooked something.
